THE SPECTATOR 

1 9 1 7 



FOREWORD 



It is with a feeling of satisfaction that the staff oi 
the 1917 Spectator completes its labors and submits the 
finished product to you, men and women of A. H. S., may 
it be deemed worthy of its predecessors. 

Through four years of labors we have plodded the 
devious paths to knowledge, yet we do not deem our ex- 
periences to be wholly devoid of pleasure and excitement. 
At one time or another we have contended with exam- 
inations and grades ; with cupid (in both faculty and 
class) ; with parties (at rare intervals) ; and at times with 
scarlet fever. Still other events too personal to men- 
tion have had their share in relieving the monotony in- 
cident to gathering the material necessary to a success- 
ful publication. 

We have endeavored to deal with matters in a just 
and unprejudiced manner and with malice and injustice 
towards none. Unburdened with false ideals it has been 
our sole purpose from the start to preserve m permanent 
form those events and features of school life, around 
which school activities crystallize. May this book serve 
the purpose for which it is intended — a retrospect of our 
our years at A. H. S.

IFACULTY! 





ADOLPH J. SEIBEL — Superintendent — 

"Si" — "Get tliat, folks." 

Made a profitable change in the teach- 
ers' profession — he quit. Insurance soon. 
Likes a touch of danger in his life — sug- 
gests Gene Stratton-Porter to Miss Powell 
for English Classics readings. 



HEYMAN B. ALLMAN — Principal — "H. 

B." — "I'm so busy!" 

Very fond of work, (such as literary 
programs, Declamations and Debates) 
when the kids do it. Will second the 
Supt's. "Throne of Purple" next year. May 
he reign long and as well as "Si"! Great 
for athletics too. 





MISS SARAH POWELL — English In- 
structor — "Well, for — rrr the dear 
sakes!" 

Next to "Dad," she has been with us 
the longest. An excellent English teach- 
er. Specializes in Oral Composition and 
themes. We fear she is not faithful to the 
accepted text, but "Long's" for "Halleck." 



H. H. KEEP — Science Instructor — "Daddy 
Keep" — "Not so noisy, folks!" 
An old hand at the business. When in- 
terviewed as to length of service said, "0 
Gosh! I don't know until I count it up; 
it's about 40 or 45 years though!" It is 
45 years. Likes to inflict long and frci- 
qiipnt tests and arduous note-books on his 
"young folks." 





MRS. MARIE L. W. FAIRFIELD — Art 
Instructor — "Mother" — "I'll send you 

right to the A. R., if ." 

It is fortunate indeed that it is rarely 
necessary that "Mother's" threats be ex- 
ecuted, for if they were we should have 
a "Reign of Terror" in A. H. S. But withal 
she is a "Mighty good old girl," and to her 
is due much of the credit for the "Spec- 
tator" drawings. She soon expects to en- 
ter the swirl of society life at Washington, 
as befits the wife of a Congressman. 



VERNE Q. JONES — Latin and Manual 
Training Instructor — "Boney Jones." 
It is claimed he made a quick action 
once in his life — he stepped on a hornets' 

nest when he was a barefoot boy ! 

Catches innocent Freshmen and innocu- 
lates them with the deadly Latin germ. Al- 
so Manual Training teacher to the sev- 
enth, eighth and ninth grade boys. 





FLORENCE &ILMORE — German In- 
stiuctor — Has no nickname or favorite 
expression. 

This is her first year in A. H. S., but she 
conceals the fact very well. Not heard of 
much, which is a good sign, and is well 
liked by all, including her "German" 
pupils. 



FRvNNK T. BLOUGH — Music Instructor 
— "Blooey" — "University of Alabama." 
Wie'der of the baton in H. S. Chorus, 
aiul in the Grades. Guards the Victrola 
clcF.ely, and never allows it to shriek in 
the A. R. First year in A. H. S. "A pret- 
ty good scout." 





JOYCE V. CREEL — Domestic Science 

Instructor — "Skinney." 

Tliis is the teacher who teaches the girls 
of A. H. S. how to take perfectly good gro- 
ceries rvnd produce, well ! Also teaches 

the H. S. and Grade girls how to do the 
"Sister Susie's Sewing Shirts for Sol- 
diers" stunt.

This Senior class 

You can't surpass 

For you know we're very keen 
Twelve years we've toiled 
Our aim not spoiled 

In this class of seventeen. 

Would you believe 

That we conceive 
The plan so wondrous bold — 

To occupy 

A place so high 
As Washington did hold? 

We're very proud 

Of our Senior crowd 
"Perseverance conquers all," 



To our motto true 
We'll stick true blue 
When duties do us call. 

The Juniors may wait 

For their chance to debate 
In that class of English IV, 
And the Sophs will leave 
What the Freshmen believe 
An honor of the seats on the floor. 

But for green and white 

We'll always fight 
To our colors we'll ever be true 
A class for fun 
Our honors won 
To our teachers these honors are 
due. 



A Senior Propliecij 

H^ )^ 1^ lift 

In 191 7 it would have been, without doubt, one of the most absurd things 
to think that Edna Spade could ever be our mighty county sheriff, and after 
receiving a warrant from Emily Waugh, the prosecuting attorney, would go 
forth and arraign a hard-working farmer by the name of Robert Douglass for 
shearing sheep on Sunday^ And to think, that, coming before the court to re- 
ceive his unjust sentence he would meet the old janitor, Carlton Smith, who 
gladly greeted him with his favorite cigar, "The Burly Cub!" But all this 
has come to pass, strange as it may seem. 

Then, soon after this, he recognized the Honorable Judge, Martha Kan- 
kamp, who looked down upon poor Robert with a grim and surly look, 
when suddenly there was heard the stern voice of Letha Rozell, the lawyer in 
whom all hopes of freedom lay. Then to his mind came the question, "Could 
this great and noble prevaricator of the truth make this jury believe that he 
was merely doing his morning chores, instead of shearing sheep, when seen 
by Pearl Johnson, the great society leader, who was returning home in the 
wee hours of the morning, after a night at the club?" 

No, there was no chance, for there in the jury box he recognized Lucile 
Alvers, the crooked dealer in hay and grain, who had beat him out of his last 
year's crop. To her left was Nina Rittter, who was chairman of the most 
corrupt political party of the time. Farther on he saw Valta Carver, the 
noted suffragette leader, and there too was Mary O'gden, who had just re- 
turned from French Lick Springs, a noted gambling resort. , 

After taking the stand, he was sworn in by County Clerk Wilma John- 
i:ron, and the proceedings were recorded by the court reporter, Willa Griffith. 
Near the door he saw chief of police Alice Stayner, who had made herself 
famous by capturing the noted vagabond, Claude Reese, who persistently 
spit on the sidewalks. 

In the gallery he saw the reporter for the "Steuben Democrat," Dorthea 
Cline. Later he was conducted to the county jail by Sheriff Spade. 

In the jail he was surprised to see Sam Brooks, Paul Coy, the tough old 
veteran, and Walter Goodwin, all of whom had been arraigned for loafing 
while laying brick for the city on 87th street, near the south end of Fox Lake. 
Farther back in a dark dreary cell, he could dimly see St. Clair VanAuken 
and Aubrey Weiss, who were listening to one of the few women who still had 
a soft and gentle voice. Robert noticed on the wall the names of several un- 
fortunaee brothers, some of whom were George Hendry, Hobart Fink and Leo 
Bair, and further down along the wall, he was surprised and shocked to see 
in large black type the names of Newton Dygert and DeLoss Goodale, all 
five of whom had been likewise wrongly accused in this Court of Unjust 
Women. 

Finally, when he retired on his cot which was hardened by the sweat of 
many other brothers, (likewise oppressed by this Court of Iniquity), he won- 
dered if his progenitors had fully realized the great burdens they had in- 
flicted upon the poor illterate and helpless men of the future, by passing the 
law which brought upon this great and glorious nation the iron rule of the 
Woman's Hand! — Class Prophet.

Medlev) of Hall Gossip 



For four long, weary years we have ridden behind the Freshman mules, 
guided the Sophomore jitney, floated in the Junior submarine, and are now 
about to depart on a long journey with the Seniors' flying machine. We have 
emerged from the trouble and worry of those tedious years without be- 
coming discouraged. Upon looking through our records I find that we have 
done well to note the more important events which will be worthy of a page in 
our "Spectator." I find that people that behave like children must be treated 
as such. That the girls and a number of the boys of the Senior class enjoy 
mid-half day lunches. That a certain girl in the Freshman class very much 
annoys a Freshman boy. That we are beginning to fear the assembly room 
floor has infantile paralysis. That Bill and Claude know the voice of an 
alarm clock when they hear it. That the seats in room B resemble will-o'- 
wisps. That the A. H. S. has earned such wide fame that even unlicensed 
dogs attend it. That Wilma is trying to find out what Washington's recon- 
struction policy after the Civil War. That Mr. Keep has the impression 
that odors can be invisible to the nose. That Vera Myers thinks that it does 
not make any difference if your shoes are not blackened so long as there are 
no boys present. That Minard Rose will not sing a solo because he has a 
heart for the audience. That Edna S. votes a mixed ticket and woman suf- 
frage remains supreme. That Hobart F. is raising a family of ladybugs. 
That Leo Bair is noted for being very approximate. That Bair has an affinity 
for limberger and limberger for Bair. That later in life Edna and Peeley 
are going to go into partnership and buy a peanut ranch. That Lucile Myers 
has lost her formula for face paint. That scarlet fever rages. That Goodie 
doesn't like to be told to go to thunder. That Nina walks two miles to ride 
a quarter of a mile in a flivver. That Sam thinks we can refine oil by means 
of a cream separator. That Miss Powell and St. Clair have had another 
word battle. That Seeley is MARRIED. That Pearl thinks they have cork- 
ers at Manilla harbor. That Mr. Keep is very cross the day after Easter, 
caused by eating too many eggs (we suppose). That Seeley votes that one 
wife is enough.

The Junior class are we ! 

Have you not heard of us before? 
We're better than these three — 

Freshie, Senior and Sophomore. 
Perhaps this Junior Class 

O'er all the world will be renowned ; 
The fame of lad and lass 

Does now from lake to town resound. 
The boys are all so good — 

Never shirk their work or play. 
It's all well understood 

We're best no matter what you say. 
Musicians are we all ; 

If you have never heard us sing 
It's worth your time to call 

And hear the school with music ring. 
We like gymnasium drill, 

In basket-ball do we excel ; 
We're noted for our skill 

When duties do not us compel. 
Next year we'll Seniors be 

And you will have much reason to 
Feel proud of us ; you see 

All former Seniors we'll outdo.

Sopliomore Class Histonj 



In the year 1907, the present Sophomore class of the Angola High 
School started its school career, under the leadership of Miss Parish. We 
now have a class of thirty-six. Of this number fourteen began school to- 
gether and have been together through the ten years of our school life. The 
others have joined us in later years. 

When we entered the Freshmen class in 191 5, we were as green as any 
class that has entered High School. Our first year was uneventful and 
we were all glad when we ceased to be "Freshies" and became dignified 
Sophomores. 

A number of our boys and girls take an active part in school athletics, 
and our boys have won their share of the medals. Most all of us have the 
ability of getting low deportment grades but our average class grades rank 
well with the others. 

Two more years and then we shall leave school and take up our chos- 
en professions. We hope to have all of our class graduate with the highest 
honors in 1919.

Fresliman Class Poem 

On the shores of Education, 

In the old Angola high, 

Stood the desks and seats of Freshmen; 

Children of the Fates, the Freshmen. 

In from eighth grade filed some students, 

Filed some good and eager students, 

Filed the Freshmen of One-seven. 

Eagerly they sought the east side 

Took their books and worked in earnest, 

Never talking, never noisy. 

Dark behind them rose the low grades, 

Rose the dark and gloomy low grades, 

Rose the C's with lines behind them. 

Bright before them shown the good grades, 

Shown the bright and sunny good grades. 

Shown the A's with pluses after. 

Many things the teachers taught them 

In the classes there assembled. 
Taught them Algebra and Science, 
Science with its notes and notebooks. 

Taught the language of the Ancients, 
Warriors who when armed with war-clubs 

Fared away toward the north land. 

Gone in search of spoils and grain land. 

Taught them cases, tense and person, 

German script and Latin marking. 

Gave them drills in art and music, 

Freehand art and vocal music. 

English with its crooks and sharp turns, 

With its tests and dark blue text books. 

With its tales from outside readings, 

Paul Revere and Mattie Jenkyns ; 

Young Tom Brown and life at Rugby; 

Birch the spy ; and pirates' treasure ; 

Marmion and Clififord Pyncheon. 

They chose officers and colors, 

Chose the yell and motto, also. 

Acted carefully and quiet. 

As Freshmen classes all should do. 

Could you now but see those Freshmen ! 

Always full of mischief are they. 

Noisily they seek the east-side. 

Leave their books and play all day time. 

Always talking — never quiet. 

Oh ! Those wicked, horrid Freshmen, 

Oh ! Those dull and failing Freshmen ; 

Ever meaner, meaner, meaner 



In the assembly room behavior. 

But their mean and stubborn manner 

Came not of their own invention. 

Came from over toward the westward ; 

Came from Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors, 

Elders who should show their pity ; 

Give their help and not their hindrance; 

Give a clear and easy pathway 

To the scholars there below them, 

To the Freshies of one-seven. 

When these Freshmen are the Seniors, 

Are the wise and knowing Seniors, 

Will they follow old example, 

Poor and faulty old example? 

They'll be good and noble Seniors, 

They'll be kind and helping Seniors, 

They'll be better, better, better 

Than the classes gone before them. 

Bravely will they seek their future, 

Seek the islands of a new life : 

Seek a new life full of promise 

Leave the last of stiuggling school days 

And seek a world with distant end. 



Fresnman Class Historij 



Nine years ago the Freshman class began its school career under Miss 
Tinkham with an enrollment of forty-one pupils. Throughout the grades 
we were privileged to have good teachers, and, although some of us may 
have failed to meet their anticipated desires, we have learned to appreciate 
their efforts, and to look back upon those days as happy ones. During 
these eight years some left for dififerent schools, while many others joined us. 

At the opening of the first semester this year we numbered sixty ; dur- 
ing the year six have dropped out, we can now boast of but fifty-four. Of 
these, seventeen were in the first year in 1908. 

It must be said that at the first of the year we made numerous mis- 
takes, felt rather conspicuous, out of place, and altogether presented a rather 
verdant appearance. But we have now grown much wiser in the ways of 
High School life, and are looking forward to the time when we shall cease 
to be "greenies" and shall have our fun with the Freshies. 

Our class has presented one of the best literary programs given this 
year, a fact which shows what we can do with the large amount of talent 
that we possess. Altogether we think we are one of the best classes that 
can be found anywhere, and feel justly proud of our accomplishments. 

It will not be long before we shall be known as Sophomores, with all 
the increased wisdom ( ?) which that name implies. 

We hope to create in the future such a high standard of character and 
intellect that the old A. H. S. will be proud to say to the members of the 
Class of 1920, "These are ours."

Eiglitli Grade Class Poem 



Motto. — "Where there's a will there's a way." 

The motto we've chosen is as old as the hills 
But nevertheless it is true. 
For but few things come to us by chance 
And our gain comes from what we do. 

If 'tis wealth we seek it can come but one way, 
And that is through earnest endeaver 
If happiness be the goal we desire. 
We must work for it now, and forever. 

If 'tis goodness of heart and trueness of life. 

We must follow the steps of the Master, 

P'or by watching our chance and doing His will, 

We can reach our desires much faster. 

But whatever our aim our efforts must be. 

Toward the goal whicli we seek day by day 

For in our work if we don't have the will. 

We never can then find the way. — Catherine Frazier.

CLASS POEM. 

Fifty-three in all are we 

Who in the Seventh Grade are due, 

And we all hope Seniors to be 

In nineteen twenty-two, 

A page in the Spectator was our aim ; 

Twenty-five subscriptions were required. 

We worked hard for these to gain 

To accomplish what we desired. 

We worked with all our might and main, 

With this great aim in view, 

We found our work was not in vain 

For we're all classmates true. 

We chose the daisy for our flower, 

With its colors of white and gold. 

White for purity, gold for power. 

Emblem of innocence we're told. 

Oh ! Class of gold and white ! 

This to you I say, 

That we were in the right 

When we wanted to have our way.

IN MEMORY OF 



PAULINE HENDRY 

Junior Yeeur 

Died April 28, 1917 



GENEVIEVE HENDRY 

Seventli Grade 
Died April 27, 1917 



In our youthful years we stand appalled and mute before the mysteries of Death. 
These winsome and beloved schoolmates have left us — God alone understands why. But 
their cheery words and happy smiles and noble characters will always be treasured in our 
memories of school days. 



There is a reaper whose name is 
death 
And with his sickle keen 
He reaps the bearded grain at a 
breath 
And the flowers that grow be- 
tween. 

"Shall I have nought that is fair?" 
said he; 
"Have nought but the bearded 
grain? 
Though the breath of these flowers 
is sweet to me, 
I will give them all back agaiji." 

He gazed at the flowers with tear- 
ful eyes, 

He kissed their drooping leaves; 
It was for the Lord of Paradise 

He bound them in his sheaves. 

"The Lord hath need of these flow'- 
rets gay," 



The reaper said and smiled, 
"Dear tokens of the earth are they. 
Where He was once a child. 

"They shall all bloom in fields of 
light, 
Transplanted by my care. 
And saints, upon their garments 
white. 
These sacred blossoms wear." 

And the mother gave. In tears and 
pain. 
The flowers she most did love; 
She knew she would find them all 
again 
In the fields of light above. 

O, not in cruelty, not in wrath 
The reaper came that day; 
'Twas an angel visited the green 
earth 
And took the flowers away. 

— Longfellow. 




Domestic 




Science 



DOMESTIC SCIENCE. 

Domestic Science is a necessary subject for every girl in her high school 
or college course. Only a few years ago it was thought that all the knowl- 
edge a girl required in that subject could be obtained in her own home, but 
now it is an important subject in nearly every high school curriculum. The 
course usually consists of two departments — cookery and sewing. Milli- 
nery is sometimes included in the latter department. 

Seeing the necessity of this subject in the Angola schools, the Jordan 
property, north of the school building, was purchased, and the lower rooms 
were furnished last year. There are three rooms — a kitchen, a dining room, 
and sewing room. , 

The subject was offered to the four classes of high school this year. The 
Freshman class numbered about twenty-five, the Junior class three, and the 
Senior class six. The Freshman class is divided into two sections and the 
Juniors and Seniors are in the same class. Two days in the week are allowed 
for the subject. The textbook used is "Food and Cookery," by Martha L. 
Metcalf. 

On April 5, the Junior and Senior girls, assisted by Miss Creel, enter- 
tained the School Board and families — Mr. and Mrs. Harry Wilder, Mr. and 
Mrs. Morton Pollock, Mr. and M!rs. Carl Redding, and Prof, and Mrs. Seibel 
— at dinner. This was the first effort of the class to entertain, and all the 
guests report, that it was a decided success. 

The girls have spent a ver}^ enjoyable as well as most profitable year in 
Domestic Science, and much credit is due Miss Creel for her supervision and 
her interest in the work.

BE A BOOSTER! 

When it comes to any big game 

With your team in deadly lock 
Wlien they're fighting for their colors 

Do you boost or do you knock ? 
If you're the booster you're the fellow 

But if you're throwing rocks 
You're no man for our High School 

We don't want the one that knocks. 
So when your team is fighting 

And you're helping them to lick 
You're the man that needs the praise 

When the other needs the kick. 

— E. E. S., '17. 



This has been the banner year for athletics in the Angola High School. 
The faculty and school board, realizing that organized and supervised play 
and games are as essential to the fullest development of a student's powers 
as diligent application during study hours, ofifered encouragement and ex- 
tended privileges to those interested in the various athletic sports. While 
our teams may not have been superior to those of other years, their play has 
been characterized by a fine spirit of sportmanship, and a more lively interest 
has been shown in all lines of athletics. Tennis, track, basket ball and base 
ball have all been promoted with the same degree of zeal and enthusiasm. 

During the first week of school a meeting was called to re-organize the 
athletic association. Officers were elected as follows : 

President Heyman Allman 

Vice-president Walter Goodwin 

Secretary-Treasurer George Hendry 

More than fifty students responded in payment of dues and became 
active members. 

The co-operation of the schools of the county was gained through the or- 
ganization of the Steuben County Athletic Association. This association has 
conducted a county track meet and basket ball tournament, both of which were 
won by the Angola boys. We hope that this organization may become per- 
m.anent, and that in future years the same pleasant relationship with the 
other schools of the county may be continued. 

Every effort has been made this year to work in harmony with the rul- 
ings of the State AthleticAssociation ; and we knew that all times the mem- 
bership of the respective teams was representative of the spirit and purpose 
of our school. 

Our teams have won state wide renown for the Angola High School by 
their excellent showing in the tournaments and meets held under the aus- 
pices of the State Association. 

We hope that in the near future when the school has been provided with 
building and equipment adequate to its needs, all students of the Angola 
High School may have the advantage of a thorough and systematic course 
in gymnasium work in addition to the privilege of taking part in the various 
sports and games. 



BASKET BALL. 

The basket ball team this year was perhaps the best team that ever 
represented this High School. Although its record is not as showy as that 
of former teams, it must be remembered that it played the strongest teams 
in Northeastern Indiana and Northwestern Ohio, and was defeated but once 
on its home floor, this game being the first of the season. This team made a 
very creditable showing, winning i6 of the 21 games played, while some 
of the games away from home were played under very unfavorable circum- 
stances and on floors differing greatly from the home floor. 

As the basket ball season drew to a close, our hopes ran high. Dur- 
ing the season we had defeated on our home floor the strongest teams we 
would meet at the District Tournament and we hoped if the luck broke even, 
to carry off the honors. On March 2nd and 3rd, the County Tournament 
was held and Angola won easily, defeating Hamilton 78 to 4, and Pleasant 
Lake 44 to 17. The team worked together like a machine, playing the best 
basket ball seen on the floor this season. 

Monroeville 54 to 26, placing in the semi-finals. By defeating Fort 
Wayne 26 to 19 Angola was in the finals, playing Kendallville. A large 
crowd of Angola rooters were present to witness the finals and hoping to 
see the home team win. However Angola was defeated, losing the hard 
fought game 33 to 25. This was the final game of the season, and how- 
ever unfavorably the closing game had resulted, no one can deny that the 
season as a whole was unusually successful.

^ 



CLAUDE REESE 

"Bun" Reese, due to his reach, 
his ability to guard and his accu- 
rate tosses, Bun's services were 
invaluable to the '17 squad. He 
could be depended upon to supply 
at any point in the game. 



DE LOSS GOODALE 
"Dodo" Deloss overcame the 
iiandicap of being slightly under 
weight and won a regular berth 
on the '17 squad. His basket eye 
together with his ability to guard 
closely, and i)lay team work con- 
sistently made him at all times 
a dependable man. 





WALTER GOODWIN 
Captoin 

• Goodie" Walter is a promising 
protege of the Jack Callahan 
style of Basket Ball. He has 
piayed on the team for three 
years and well deserved the rec- 
ognition of being captain of the 
'17 squad. His speedy floor work, 
clever passes, and accurate bas- 
ket eye mark him as the best bafc- 
ket ball player ever produced by 
the local school. 



GEORGE HENDRY 

"Guilty" George was also one 
of Gal's veterans and the '17 team 
wat at no time complete without 
George and Goodie working as 
side partners. He is an excep- 
tionally good floor guard, able to 
make long and difficult shots 
count regularly. He won the hon- 
or of being placed on the all dis- 
trict team. 





FIELD AND TRACK. 



In the school year of 'i6 and '17 much interest was shown in field 
and track work. The team did very little training- for the Steuben County 
meet, at the fair, but are working- hard in order to make a good showing at 
the district and possibly some of the team will go to the state meet. In the 
year of 1916 the team took first in every event with the exception of mile 
run which was carried away by the Orland man who was given a close 
second by Bair. The team is fortunate in having three men holding high 
records in the persons of Shank, Seely and Clark. 

In the spring meet we hope to raise every record made at the fair. 
The results of the county meet are given below in table form : 
FOLLOW TABLES . .in 8 POINT back kt. . . . 



"SEETjY." 

Seely, our track captain, is tlie 
best broad jumper in High School 
and County as was shown by the re- 
sult of the County Track Meet held 
at the Fair last fall. His record of 
19-8% establishes a new record for 
this High School, surpassing the for- 
mer record of Cain in 1915, 2-2% 
He easily took second in the high 
jump and shot put and we expect 
great things from him :n the Dis- 
trict and State Meets this Spring. 





"SHANK." 

When Shank entered school last 
fall we expected him to star in the 
short distance runs. These expecta- 
tions proved to be well founded, 
Shank winning the 100, 220, and 
44 0. As some of his records closely 
rival former State High School 
records, we are confident he can win 
his events in the District Meet this 
spring and place in the State meet.

GIRLS' BASKET BALL. 

The j^irls' basket ball team was very late in organizing this year and not 
many H. S. girls displayed an active interest in the sport, mnch to the dis- 
sapointment of a faithful few. The severe winter weather interfered with 
the constant practice that goes to make perfect players. The girls made 
themselves conspicuous not only by rapid playing but also by bright red 
middies. 

It is feared that, with the graduation of this year's class, the 
team will be greatly weakened inasmuch as five of the '17 girls hold down 
regular positions. 

Edna Spade has proved to be the best floor player, being able to hold 
down any place with equal ability. She has had four years of excellent 
training as her perfect plays go to show. 

Although this is Yalta's first year at B. B. she is a good example of 
what effort will -do. Her quick wit and good humor make her very popu- 
lar on team and off. 

This is Letha's first year on the team and she is always to 
be relied on and seldom misses either practice or game. She knows her 
signals well and is extraordinarily sly in the use of them. 

Lucile ]\Ieyers is a new member here and is a valuable addition to 
the team. Her skill and strength give her great advantage and strike ter- 
ror to the hearts of her opponents. 

Emily Waugh has been on the team the last two years and has earned 
the lespect of all participants. She has shown great skill as "Skipper" 
and directs her team like a veteran. 

Of the Juniors, Hazel Newman is the best player. Her good spirits 
and even temper make her well liked at home and abroad. Records show 
that she has not fouled in a game in either of the last two years. She will 
undoubtedly be the mainstay of next year's team. 

Dorthea Pence, our loyal little sub, is always on hand when needed 
most. Dorthea plays equally well as forward or side center. She, too, will 
make a most valuable asset to next year's team.

EMILY WAUGH 

"Waugh" Emily was elected 
captain of the '17 team, and has 
proven herself well worthy of the 
honor. She deserves much credit 
for keeping the team well organ- 
ized, and her ceaseless efforts to 
instill "pep" and teamwork, her 
rapid floor work and skill in cag- 
ing baskets characterize her as an 
individual star.

BASEBALL. 

Along about the middle of March Captain Shank began to feel faint 
signs of spring. Although snow covered the diamond he sent Flintward for 
his suit. He then called a preliminary tryout at the gym. By the last of 
the month outdoor practice began. 

Early in April the team played a few practice games with the Tri- 
State men and with Pleasant Lake. A. H. S. won all of these but on April 
seventh they lost to Orland. This was probably due to lack of practice, 
practice. 

On April 14 Waterloo is expected here. The boys are keeping up 
steady practice now and we have great expectations for the next game. 

On April 21 Orland is scheduled to play here and we will show them 
what Angola can really do. 

We will meet Fremont on the i8th and again on the 25th but should 
have no difficulty in showing them up. 

May 12 Coldwater comes here to play and on June 2nd a return game 
at Coldwater will be staged. 

If all things pan out right Angola will go to the state baseball tour- 
nament which will be held ]\Iay 25th at Purdue. 

The probable squad consists of: Shank, Clark, Crain, Parsons, Lane, 
Reese, Goodwin. Butz, Goodale, Parsell, Hendry, Crandall, Neutz and 
Tiffany. 



II TENNIS. 

For the first time in the history of A. H. S., tennis has had an active 
place among other sports. This is due to the increasing interest displayed 
by the school, assisted by the untiring efforts of Mr. Allman. 

Last spring the boys, wishing to promote the welfare of the school, do- 
nated their time and services in making a court. It is located just south- 
west of the building. 

In the fall Mr. Allman suggested and skillfully managed a tournament 
This was open to all members of the Athletic Association. None of the 
girls responded but the majority of the boys took an active interest in it. 
The Senior class was represented by Goodale and Reese, and Goodwin and 
Douglass ; the Juniors by Rose and Tiffany ; the Sophomores deserve hon- 
orable mention for their stars, Clark and Lane ; the Freshmen spirit de- 
mands recognition in the persons of Creel and Crandall. 
' ; An inter-class tournament was held in September to deterrnine the 
championship. Clark and Lane starred, Reese and Goodale following a 
close second. 

One Saturday in September Coldwater came here. Goodwin and Good- 
ale, Clark and Lane representing Angola, carried all the honors in the 
doubles. However the singles broke even, favoring Goodale and Clark. "' 



A return game was played at Coldwater with the same men represent- 
ing Angola. The contest, which was reported to be fine, was played under 
very favorable conditions, Coldwater claiming an excellent court. The 
games were very close and exciting although Angola lost in all but the 
singles, which were won by Clark. 

With spring here the boys are more enthusiastic than ever and we can 
safely hope for better tennis than ever before. 

At present the plans are to play Colwater again or possibly Auburn.

L. C. STEIFEL. 



We desire to publicly thank Mr. Stiefel for the keen interest he has 
displayed toward Athletics. For the last two years he has supported B. 
B. by attending almost every game. He loyally fostered the squad at the 
district tournament in Kendallville. Besides moral support he has helped 
the Athletic Association very substantially in a financial way. We are in- 
deed grateful to him.

On Friday evening, December 15, 1916, during the Centennial week in 
Angola, the Seniors of 1917 presented their annual class play in the little 
theater style. This gave each member of the class an ample opportunity to 
appear on the stage. The first play was "Sunset."

Scene — A room in a countrv house in Eng^land. 



The play begins as Joan returns from a boarding school in London. She 
relates her good times to Lois. While this conversation is ensuing, Lois re- 
ceives a letter from her lover. As she reads her letter, Joan bursts into 
tears then tells Lois that she fears that she will not win him. As this dis- 
cussion proceeds, Aunt Drusilla their guardian, appears, and the girls im- 
mediately take up their needlework. Mr. Rivers, Lois' father, and Azaria 
Stodd. a country gentleman, soon appear. Aunt Drusilla and "Sir. Rivers are 
much interested in the young man and try their best to get the girls to en- 
tertain him royally. The girls comply to their wishes while Aunt Drusilla 
and Mr. Rivers are near, but as soon as they are absent, they use him ver}' 
rudely. They have lovers of a much different type and do not dare to have 




anything whatever to do with this country bumpkin. Azaria and Joan leave 
the room and Lawrence, a young lawyer, the lover of Lois, is announced. 
He appears, and Lois is about to rush into his arms, when Joan enters and 
recognizes him as her lover while she was at boarding school. Much to the 
grief of Lois, she very kindly gives Lawrence to Joan. 
Next appeared "Thank Heaven the Table is Set."

Place — Reception room in an English house. 

Lucy, the maid in the Harford home, and James, the Butler, prepare the 
supper. When this is accomplished, James insists upon Lucy's saying, 
"Thank Heaven, the table is set." This she simply refuses to do. As they 
are quarreling over this, Mr. and Mrs. Harford appear and learn the trouble. 
Mr. Harford thinks it no trouble to get his voung wife to say these simple 
words, so he kindly asks her to repeat them; but she refuses. This being 
their first quarrel, Jessie is much grieved. As this is taking place the father 
and mother of Jessie, Mr. and Mrs. Harwood, are announced. Jessie vainly 



tries to dry her eyes. Of course her mother immediately inquires as to th^ 
trouble. When the matter is made known, Yir. Harwood plainly states that 
his kind wife would never think of refusing to say anything for him. He asks 
her to state the simple sentence, but she too refused. After much coaxing 
and begging of Mr. Harwood. she re])eats the words, "Thank Heaven, the 
table is set." She then induces Jessie to say them and this she does. Soon 
Lucy and James appear and Jessie insists on Lucy's repeating the sentence ; 
but she still resists. After much persuading she repeats the words at inter- 
vals until the sentence is complete; then all are happy. 
"Spreading the News" next appeared.

Scene — Ireland ; the outskirts of a fair. 

Mrs. Tarpy, a deaf woman, selling apples at the fair, is interrupted by the 
magistrate, policeman and James Ryan. During the conversation she hears 
something about Jack Smith, but she is so deaf that she does not get the 
while story. Bartley Rallon, the man who is always saying, 'A\'henever any 
misfortune comes into this world, it's on meself it pitches like a flock of 
crows on seed potatoes," and his wife are at the fair. Jack Smith is among 
the crowd and leaAes his hayfork; Mrs. Fallon finds it and immediately sends 
Bartley with the fork after him. Soon Tim Casey arrives and tells the news 
to Mrs. Tarpey, but she. being so deaf, understands him to say that Jack 
Smith has been killed with a hayfork by Baitlcy Fallon. Shawn Early and 
Mrs. Tarpey appear and are told the news. Soon it is spread over the country. 
The townspeople enter and are all interested in the affair. ]\Irs. Fallon is 
giving Bartley her sentiments when the voice of Jack Smith is heard singing. 
Finally he appears and of course more excitement is aroused. Jack Smith 
and Bartley Fallon are put in charge of the police, and as the curtain falls 
the people all rush to hear the trial. 

The plays were the best that have ever been given by the Seniors of the 
Angola High School. They were a success financially and dramatically. 
Each part was well given and the characters that were portrayed were very 
well represented. All this is due to the careful coaching of Prof. Charles 
Shank. The Senior Class, as well as the Angola people, cannot praise Prof. 
Shank too highly for the care he took in coaching the play. He is an Angola 
boy and Angola people should be proud of him.

Does chewing tobacco make a man? No, but 
it makes a muss. One of the Juniors, who had 
not yet learned, as have the wise Seniors, that 
education deals in theories and examples as 
well as practical lessons, determined by experi- 
ence to prove that chewing was a necessary ac- 
quirement for manliness. Our artist has told 
more in pictures than words can express. Never 
again !

FRESHMAN SOCIETY. 

The social event of the Freshman year was the watermelon party at the 
country home of Pauline Hanselman. On the beautiful evening of Friday, 
the thirteenth, the Freshmen assembled at the High School building at seven 
thirty o'clock, where a spacious hay rack was waiting to be well filled with 
jolly girls and boys. The five miles were immeasureably shortened by songs 
i'.nd story telling. When they arrived they were given a hearty welcome by 
the family. Games and music furnished tthe amusements of the evening. At 
a late hour refreshments were served, consisting of popcorn, apples and wat- 
ermelon. Upon leaving, all declared a splendid time. The distance going 
home was a little longer, and the crowd was a little more subdued. 

* -j- * -j- sK 

SOPHOMORE SOCIETY. 

October 3, 1916, Hilda Cline invited the girls of the Sophomore class to 
a slumber party at Cline's cottage at Lake James. They spent the afternoon 
by visiting the country school taught by Phyllis Slade. In the evening they 
played tricks on one another and made fudge. All had a swell time. 

Two bob-loads of Sophomores were entertained at Edna Stetler's Dec- 
ember 22. The evening was spent in games and music. Refreshments were 
served about eleven o'clock, and the bob riders started home at that hour. 
Everyone had a jolly good time. If only the miles had been longer, the 
horses slower, and the road more bumpy ! 

The Sophomores were entertained at the home of Mildred Miller. The 
party was in honor of our not-forgotten school mate, Myrna Sherburn. The 
evening was spent in playing games and music. Light refreshments were 
served abut twelve o'clock. All departed for their homes in the small hours 
of the A. M., having reported a fine time. We all hope that the Freshmen 
who were looking in the windows and sneaking around, learned to like punch, 
and that they will be much more dignified when they get out of the Fresh- 
man class. 

* t * t * 
JUNIOR SOCIETY. 

The main social functions of the Junior class of 1917 have originated 
through three clubs, namely, "Chi Sigma Theta," "Triple S," and the 
"T. H. D.'s". These clubs are of a social nature. During this term the mem- 
bers of the Chi Sigma Theta club have given birthday parties for four of their 
members— Pauline Hendry, Florence Mast, Mildred Wolfe, and Ruth Zabst. 

Among the other parties, one of the most pleasant was a New Year's 
party given by Ruth Zabst. Thirteen of the members invited guests, making 
a party of twenty-six. After the guests had all arrived, they listened to a 
number of selections on the Victrola. They then amused themselves by play- 
ing different card games. Oue of the most exciting events of the evening 
happened about 12 o'clock, when the lights went out ; but thoughtfully lamps 
had been prepared and the rooms were soon lighted again. After the card 
games, refreshments of sandwiches, coffee, salad, wafers, ice cream, peanuts 



and olives were enjoyed by all. The remainder of the time was spent in 
dancing. 

The first club organized in thte Junior class of 191 7 was the "Triple S." 
There are only seven members of this club, which meets weekly at the homes 
of its different members. They have given one birthday party, a valentine 
party, and an April Fool party. The surprise party was in honor of Miss 
Vera Callender on September 25. The April Fool's party was also held at 
her home on April 2. The evening was spent in singing and playing games, 
after which a bounteous luncheon was served. Marshmallows were roasted 
by candlelight, the candles were then blown out, and each one told a ghost 
story. The guest of honor was Miss Myrna Sherburn, of Geneva, Ohio. At 
a late hour all went home reporting a pleasant time. 

Misses Ethel Eckert and Birdie Morrison gave a very pleasing Valen- 
tine party at the home of the latter on February 9th. There were fourteen 
present, who enjoyed a number of games musical selections, and a luncheon 
of cocoa, peanut butter sandwiches, jello salad, and two kinds of cake. 

On the evening of October 31, Roscoe Crissinger entertained the class at a 
Hallowe'en party at his home. The decorations were of orange and black, the 
Junior class colors. There were twenty-five persons present, nearly all of 
whom were masked. Those who were not masked, guessed who the others 
were, and as soon as each was recognized his mask was removed. Many dif- 
ferent kinds of games were played, and the evening was happily spent by all. 
At 11:30 o'clock, they were served refreshments of fresh peaches and cream 
and cake, which delightfully surprised everyone. After this was over, marsh- 
mallows were roasted over candles placed on plates. Shortly after midnight 
the guests took their leave, reporting an enjoyable time.

SENIOR SOCIETY. 

When a person thinks of school life, the all important part is society. The 
social functions we enjoy help the bashful boy or girl to get a start in life. 
This year, unfortunately, our time was well occupied by the school programs 
and outside activities. 

Early in the fall Edna Spade royally entertained the Seniors at her home. 
In the wee hours, some 1916 Seniors appeared and took a loaf of bread, all 
the other "eats" having been well taken care of before their arrival. Edna 
is an able hostess, and everyone had a fine time. 

One Saturday night in January, the Senior class was invited to Fink's 
for a surprise on Hobart. On account of the basket ball game, only a few 
were present, but everyone enjoyed a very pleasant evening. Hobart, some- 
way was wise to the fact, and it wasn't much of a surprise after all. We 
did not get home until late Sunday morning and Hobart will long be remem- 
bered by his school mates for the good time he gave us. 

Letha Rozell had promised us a bob-load when we were lower classmen, 
and this year when plans were all completed for the occasion, snow failed us. 
We will trust Letha to remember us later by a lawn party. 



THE 'S. O. S." 

Shortly after the beginning of school activities in September, Mr. Allman 
called together all those interested in a High School Debating Society and in 
debating work. A moderate sized group of students appeared and a few 
plans were laid out for the continuation of the work in this field. But after 
a second meeting a few weeks later, all interest seemed to be lost, and the 
society was apparently forgotten. 

Early in February, however, Mr. Allman announced the plans and par- 
ticulars of the Indiana Discussion League contests to be held in each county. 
One representative was to be sent from each county to a district contest, and 
the winner of this contest was to be sent to a state contest at Bloomington. 
A small group of students met in the basement of the Public Library, officers 
were elected, and an organized club was founded. This was the "S. O. S." 
club — the "Society of Scrappers," and from the start it promised to live up to 
its name. The chief purpose of this club was to train the members in public 
speaking. From this organization a candidate was chosen to represent the 
school in the district contest. 

Our local contest was held in the Methodist Church on Friday evening, 
March 30. A moderate sized audience attended, giving good support to the 
contestants and to the club. Five boys spoke on the question, "Resolved, 
that the United States should adopt a system of universal compulsory mili- 
tary training, similar in essentials, to that of Switzerland." All did well 
considering the circumstances, and Riissel Flaishans was adjudged the win- 
ner by a narrow margin. He went to Fort Wayne on April 6, but since he 
had to meet long-trained speakers from schools with old and well-developed 
debating teams, it was not to be expected that he could successfully compete 
with them, but would rather let them know that Angola was 'on the map." 
This he did, and if this work is pushed in the future, it may be that A. H. S. 
will do more than to announce its entrance in the debating field of sshool 
activities. 

It is as one of the judges said — none of the boys knew his power. Tal- 
ent was displayed in this work which was heretofore unknown, even to the 
teachers themselves. Work of this kind is of inestimable value to the student 
body at large, for although they cannot all surpass, they learn to "let their 
light shine before men;'_to be able to stand before a bublic gathering- and 
creditably express themselves. 

There has been but a short period of activity along this line, but it has 
shown wonderful possibilities. With the proper amount of organization 
next year we may be able to produce a very strong, if not a championship 
team, with the material at hand.

INTER-CLASS ORATORIAL CONTEST. 

A new feature of literary work this year was a declamation contest. 
In order to best develop the Ijest talent in school each student was re- 
quired to deliver a suitable selection. Contests were then held within the 
four classes to choose three contestants to constitute a class team in the 
final contest. Prizes of ten, five and three dollars were given to the win- 
ning contestants. We hope that in the future the inter-class contests ma}^ 
become a permanent function of each school year. 




BERT WILCOX. 

"Bert," the shaker of the grates and wielder of the broom, is indeed 
"Our Mutual Friend." He is never too busy to tell a story ; crack a joke, 
or lend any desired assistance. This is Bert's tenth year and he is looked 
upon as an essential factor in the life of A. H. S.

Tlie Value of a Higli Scliool Annual 

An annual school magazine, such as the "Spectator," is valuable* in two 
ways, both to the school and to the individual pupil. Its immediate value 
is that it teaches the producers of the magazine the value and necessity of 
working together ; it gives the different department leaders a wide range of 
duties, the effectiveness of the fulfillment of such duties being limited only 
by their cleverness, wit and energy ; and, lastly, the various co-workers 
have the pleasure and inspiration of seeing their labors growing into a repre- 
sentative and permanent chronicle of the school life for the year, 

The second value of the work is like the proverbial wine inasmuch as 
it is not appreciable and effectual until the cycle of time has worked its 
change upon the chroniclers themselves. It is only after ten, twenty, or 
more years have passed that the "annual," valuable once only as a record of 
events, now becomes a milestone in the history of the recorders themselves. 
It is the latter way that the annual performs its greatest and best function.

After Manij Years 

The smaller gypsy wagons were already in the woods and the gypsies, 
paying little attention to their new surroundings, were busy with their eve- 
ning work when a large coach drew up and the chief, an ugly old man, 
jumped out and exclaimed angrily, "Yes, it is like you to pitch your tent on 
that little mound; have you forgotten that the children of the woods are 
equal?" 

"Have you forgotten?" cried the other defiantly. "I'll not move it, neith- 
er will I dig potatoes nor strip the corn. Were you as eager for the law of 
these whites on your head as you are for it on mine, you would be stand- 
ing ankle deep in the mud on yonder hill and stripping corn in sight of the 
public instead of dictating to me. Chief indeed, and a fine chief at that!" 

"Evand, Evand, hold your tongue," said his wife, laying her hand on his 
shoulder. "If you don't stop quarreling with the chief, he will harm you." 

"O, Marie," said Evand, his sharp intelligent features flushed with an- 
ger, "If we only lived like the white people; their rules are not so exacting 
as ours and they are clean, honest people too." 

"O, well," replied his wife easily, "you'll probably have a chance to live 
like them yet." 

"If you are so fond of the white people and the government, go and live 
as they do. Yes, go! go! go!" said the old chief grimly. 

"Go? Yes, gladly would I have gone, but it is too late now. Why 
wouldn't you let me go when I was a boy ; surely there would have been a 
place for me then. I always longed to go and I will go now. Come, Marie, 
where are Teleliah and Jachof ?" 

"Marie, go? Marie and the children go?" questioned two or three. 

"No! No! Marie and the children shall not go!" shrieked the chief. 

"Marie will go," returned Marie loftily, and she turned away in search 
of the children. She fo«nd them covered with mud and playing in a creek 
with the other little gypsies. They asked no questions but followed her back 
to the camp, where Evand and the chief were quarreling over the team. 

"Evand Karrah, you think you will take my team and ,wagon, do you.''" 
cried the chief. 

"I think I'll take the team and wagon I saved all my life to buy," re- 
turned Evand. 

"Well, if you're really going I'll not begrudge you the loss of the team," 
said the chief darkly. 

The women gathered around to bid Marie farewell. One toothless old 
gypsy handed her a little corduroy coat. "It was Evand's," she explained, 
"and I want him to have it." Jachof put the coat on and Marie gave the 
handkerchief and some string, which were in the pocket, to Teleliah, who 
put them in her own pocket. Soon the already weary team was started on its 
journey. 



"Where are yon going?" asked Marie. 

"To the camp in the big woods," replied Evand, "I know they are our 
enemies, but it is our only hope." 

"Now, Evand Karrah. we've left our only friends and relatives," said 
Marie sadly. 

"I don't think the old chief has been very friendly. For the last few 
vears he has insisted that I leave camp, but I didn't make up my mind to, 
till now," replied Evand. 

After travelling for two hours they drew up by a little woods. Half 
an hour later a passerby might have seen by the camp-fire and the frequent 
flash of lightning the horses grazing near, and on a canvas spread near the 
wagon Evand Karrah and his family were eating their evening meal, little 
dreaming of what the morrow would bring. 

PART TWO. 

Mrs. McKay, matron of the orphans' home regarded the two little chil- 
dren suspiciously and then said, "Well, who are, they anyway?" 

"You've taken in plenty before that you didn't know who they were; but 
since you'll have to take these in anyway, I'll tell you; they are gypsies, 
their father and mother were killed in a gypsj^fight," replied the sheriff. 

"Yes, and maybe you think I'll take them in?" she returned savagely. 

"Well, you will have to, that's all. If you don't tell who they are, they 
will soon have homes anyway, for they won't be so black when they are 
clean." 

It took the children some time to get accustomed to their new surround- 
ings, but after a time they ceased to talk of the camp. Then came a great 
event in Teleliah's life. She was adopted by a Mr. and Mrs. Light, who liv- 
ed in a nearby city. She was very happy in her new home and soon forgot 
she had had any other. Jachof however, who was a little older, remembered 
Teleliah and their camp life. When he was fifteen years old he was sent 
from the orphans' home and went to work in the factory. Teleliah grew to 
be a very bright and accomplished girl. 

One day several weeks before Teleliah's graduation day Mrs. Light said 
to her, "My aunt Louise, ,whom you have never seen, is coming to the States 
from Spain, and she will.be here in time for commencement." 

"Is she a foreigner?" asked Teleliah. 

"No," replied Mrs. Light, "her husband was a Spaniard ; they lived in 
Albion, Florida, until the disappearance of their little son." 

"Tell me about it," begged Teleliah. 

"Well," replied Mrs. Light, "All I can tell you is that Albion was burn- 
ed and after the fire there was a terrible storm. Aunt Louise and her hus- 
band were away visiting, having left the little boy with a governess. When 
ihey returned to Albion they found that she had been killed, but no trace 
of Tommy could be found. Aunt Louise was confident that he was alive and 
had detectives working on the case, but to no avail. 

"At last they gave up and went to Spain where they made their home." 

Teleliah counted the time from weeks to days, from days to hours and 
when it grew to be a matter of minutes, drove with Airs. Light to the station 
to meet her aunt. 



Mrs. San Gertz proved to be a kind, elderly widow, wKo A^as interested 
in antiques. One storrrty day Mrs. Light took her into the attic to look ov- 
er the contents of some old trunks. Mrs. San Gertz was examining some 
white goods when suddenly she held up a little handkerchief and exclaimed, 
"Why, Edna, I didn't know you had one of these. My little sister embroid- 
ered them for little Tommy." 

"Oh, no," replied Mrs. Light, "you are mistaken, that belongs to Tele- 
liah ; it came from the home." 

"But Edna, I know it is one of them, and it may bring some clue of 
Tommy." 

"All right," replied Mrs. Light, "we can go to the home this afternoon. 
The matron knew nothing about Teleliah, but she may know now." 

That afternoon they went to the home, but Mrs. McKay had left the 
service and the new matron had never heard of the children. They were 
about to leave when a young .woman who had been sitting near said, "I re- 
member her, she's a plain gypsy." 

"What?" exclaimed the woman, taken aback. 

"Yes, ma'am," the girl went on, "she's a gypsy; her father and mother 
were killed in a gypsy fig-ht. There was a boy and a girl and when the 
sherifif brought them here he told Mrs. McKay she didn't have to tell who 
they were. The boy's gone now and is working in the factory." 

"How did you come to know this?" asked Mrs. Light. 

"Oh, I was standing near and heard it." 

"Then it is hopeless," cried Mrs. San Gertz, "for gypsies swarmed the 
South. Once they stole part of our washing and this may have been in 
that. Besides, we never could find the tribe." 

"The old sheriff might be able to help you." suggested the matron. 
They found him and he told them the same tribe returned nearly every 
summer. 

Teleliah insisted that she see her brother so they went to the factory. 
Jachof was both surprised and delighted to see his sister and he told her 
what he could remember of the camp life. 

Mrs. San Gertz remained with her niece in the hope that the tribe would 
return but three years passed before the sheriff notified them that the gyp- 
sies were once again camping near there. 

Mrs. San Gertz, Teleliah, Jachof, Mr. and Mrs. Light and several offi- 
cers went to the camp. One of the officials exhibited the little coat and 
said, "Since we are led to believe that you know something about it, we have 
come to make inquiries concerning the disappearance of Thomas San Gertz 
from Albion, Florida, during the great fire some fifty years ago." 

The gypsies held a council among thesmelves and at last one old wom- 
an said, "Yes, Fll tell you about it. We were camped near Albion, Florida, 
at the time of the great fire. You have heard that after the fire a great 
storm came up. Many were killed but after the sky had cleared, a little 
fellow who had been attracted by our seeming comfort, came to our camp. 
His appearance was that of a wealthy child. Our chief thought that a 
large reward might be offered for his recovery, so we took him into camp 
and travelled away from Albion as fast as we could. Some time passed be- 



fore we heard of the disappearance of Thomas San Gertz. We wrote to his 
people, but never received any reply. The boy was very bright and was 
easily trained and he made quite a sum of money for us at the fairs we 
attended, so we were willing to keep him. He did not like the camp life 
and made several attempts to get away, but the chief, who always had the 
idea of his reward in mind, kept close watch of him. We never told him 
that he was a white boy for fear that when he grew up he would maike 
trouble for us. He grew so stubborn because he couldn't have his own 
way that he wouldn't have much to do with us. The chief thought that the 
young man felt above him and one evening they had a quarrel and Evand 
took his family and left camp. They attempted to join another tribe who 
were enemies of ours, but he and his wife were shot. A sheriff happened 
along just then and the gypsies were put in jail and Evand's children were 
taken to the orphans' home. We paid little further attention to them and 
most of us had nearly forgotten about it." 

Mrs. San Gertz felt that no action should be taken so the matter was 
dropped. She gave up all intentions of returning to Spain and made her 
home with her niece that she might be near her grand children. 




Tke Crij of tlie Cliilclren 



By VOX KIDO'RUM. 

A score and a half and four years ago, our ancestors brought forth upon 
this locality this edifice of knowledge, immersed in debt and dedicated to 
the proposition that all students should be treated equal. Now we are en- 
gaged in a stupendous discussion testing whether this structure, or any 
other so abominably constructed and miserably arranged can long endure. 
We are gathered in a great meeting to test that discussion. We consider 
dedicating that pile of bricks and hard pine as a monument to those who 
were congealed or who were intellectually starv^ed to death while in torrid 
pursuit of some small fragments of learning. It is undoubtedly fitting and 
proper that we should do this. But in cold reality we alone cannot effect 
such a miraculous transition ; however necessary it may be ; we ourselves 
cannot erect this structure. The immortal students who struggled here have 
desecrated it far beyond our poor power to add or detract. The School Board, 
of course, has no consideration for what we have to say, but we cannot 
forget what they did here. It is for us. the students, rather to complete the 
scarcely started work so nobly proposed. But we are cruelly driven on to the 
gruelling task set before — that from these time-honored graduates we take 
ever increasing devotion to the institution which the incessant toil and ex- 
cruciating agony have so nobly merited ; that we here sincerely hope that 
these shall not have toiled in vain; that the student body, under common 
sense, shall have a new institution of knowledge, and that a school of the 
students, by the faculty, and for the students shall not perish from this town. 




A Wisk Fulfilled 



Alice ^^"right lay in a cozy hammock under the over spreading maple 
trees. Her chum, Evelyn Mickles, who sat on the ground with her back 
pillowed against a large tree, was trying to read a magazine, which to all 
appearances she found uninteresting. At last, she threw the book upon the 
ground and looked up at the girl in the hammock. 

"Isn't this rich, Alice? Here it is the fourth day at the lake and it's 
just as dull as it was in the hot city. I did think I was going to have the 
best time of my life, but so far I have found nothing to do but sit around and 
read. Our chaperon won't let us go boating or anything through the day. 
I guess she is afraid we might get a sunstroke." 

"Oh now you must not be too hard on Miss Chester. Remember she was 
good enough to come along," said Alice. 

"But I just can't help it, this monotony is simply becoming unbearable. 
T do wish something would happen." 

"Well, come on Eve, and let's take a walk." So the girls made sure no 
one was looking and went down the path along the shore. It was getting 
late in the afternoon, for the sun was cjuite low in the west. All at once 
they heard a sharp clear whistle. The girls looked up and saw Bob Schley 
and Dick Hadley coming toward them. They were from a camp of six boys 
just in the other side of the woods. 

"Girls," said Bob. after the boys had reached them. "Yf)u are just whom 
we wanted to see. We haven't had a decent meal since we have been camp- 
ing, and we thought we would come over and get two of you girls to get us 
a good square meal. There is plenty of stuff to cook and if you kids will 
cook it for us, you don't know how thankful we will be." 

"That will be pecks of fun, we have just been wanting something to do," 
said the girls. 

As they came up to the camp the boys gave them a loud hurrah, and the 
girls donned big aprons and soon had the meat frying in the pan. The table 
was set and in a short time all were enjoying a good wholesome supper. 

"There is going to be a kind of an informal reception for Miss Ridgely, a 
friend of our chaperone, tonight over at" the Lazy Lodge cottage, and we girls 
are trying to scrape up some reason for not "going. Of course the "chap" 
expects all of us to go, but we don't want to for she is an old maid, not a 
bit of life in her, and we will have to sit around like Quakers all evening," 
said Evelyn. 

All thought a long time, then Dick said, "I've got it! We boys are in- 
vited too and all are going but Bob and me, so let us four go canoeing." 

"But can't you see that we girls can't get away?" said Alice. 

"Sure, that will be great," said Bob. "Oh you can get away, too. Make 
a bluff. Evelyn you play off sick with a headache and make Alice stay to 
take care of you, and when all have gone, come down to the pier and we will 
be there with the canoes and we will have a race. What do you say?" 

"We are game," said the girls. They escorted the girls down to the 



shore and then went back to wash the dishes. The girls hurried along and 
got back just as every one was sitting down to supper. 

"Do hurry girls," said Miss Chester. "What kept you so late and where 
have you been? Wash and come to supper." 

"Really Miss Chester I don't want any supper. I have a severe head- 
ache and will go to my room. We have been walking and I guess the sun 
was too hot for me," said Evelyn. 

"I will eat just a bite Eve and then will come up to your room. Lie 
down until I come. Miss Chester you will excuse us this evening, I hope?" 

"Yes. my dears, but I hope her headache is nothing serious." 

Supper over and by eight o'clock every one had gone but the two girls. 
"Remember." said Alice, as they were going out of the door, "we must be in 
at eleven. That is the rule, don't you know." 

"Hope some one has a watch." said Evelyn. 

The boys were waiting as they had promised, and after some argument 
it was decided that the girls race the boys, for a time at least, so the girls 
stepped into one of the canoes and were silently pushed out. 

For a time the canoes went side by side, the boys gaining as they put 
more force to the paddle. Finally Dick's paddle slipped and flew into the 
water. It was dark and it took some time for him to find it. A wind was 
rising and it seemed each time they came near the paddle the wind swept it 
far out of reach. In the meantime the girls paddled far past them. Not 
knowing the lake well, they turned around an island where the waves were 
higher. These were too much for the canoe and over it went, tipping the 
girls into the water. The water was not deep, for a sandbar lay near the 
island, but the girls were thoroughly drenched. 

The boys heard their screams and having found their paddle came to 
the rescue, and the girls were taken safely home. There was no light, ex- 
cept in Miss Chester's room, and it appea''ed that all were in bed. After 
saying goodnight, the girls slipped into the back door and into their room. 
The clock in the kitchen was striking the hour of eleven. They barely had 
time to lay aside their wet garments when they heard the step of the chap- 
eron coming to see if every girl was in bed. The girls blew out the light and 
got quietly into bed. Later when Miss Chester had gone and they were in 
bed for the night, they stopped to think over their recklessness. 

Finally Alice whispered. "Well, that was a narrow escape. A minute 
later and the doors would have been locked. I think. Evelyn, your wish 
has been granted and that we have had enough experience for one day at 
least, don't you?" Evelyn gave a little laugh and they soon fell asleep.

From tke Tliesis oi Izick Islividwurnj, T. S. C, Entitled 

"Does tlie Bodi] Work Wliile tlie Mind is on Its Vacation? 



(3-35)- A^l's quiet in the A. R. 

•Suddenly a squawlky-squeak smites the shrieking silence. A short chub- 
by figure is seen to rear himself from the depths of the teacher's chair and 
stubs his way to the dark and dreary corner. When Lo ! The gleams of 
the setting sun flood the dark, dank dungeon with a gleam radiating from a 
smooth, shiny surface above a pair of optics, and fill the corner with a soft 
light. Rich, silvery tones, like the "Chimes of Normandy." fill the auditorium. 

(3:36). The building sways with the terrific impact of many a tattered 
book jammed out of sight. But note! The swaying walls are stayed by a 
sonorous voice announcing in respectful tones, and with many an apologetic 
nod at the "Class of '17" — "Seniors pass for wraps!" 

Slight stir on starboard section. A straight, regular column is seen 
steadily advancing into the fathomless depths of that murky abyss. 

(3:37)- "J^iwiors pass!" A cloud seems to pass over that tranquil coun- 
tenance, as the Juniors arise and leave for parts unknown. 

(3 •■38)- "Sophomores pass!" The voice is no longer sweet and melo- 
dious, but resounds with a hint of approaching danger. Grand shufile, inter- 
spersed with hysterical giggles, when a tall athletic figure makes a grace- 
less attempt to remove part of the floor for a souvenir, but refrains with a 
violent contortion. 

(3-39)- At this moment a sweet look of peace passes over the care-worn 
visage of that be-spectacled instructor, as various forms in "Green and 
White" reappear, but with one mighty efifort he tears his glance away and 
once more the silvery chimes resound. Then, in the midst of a Herculean 
effort to hold the bookcase upright, and in a consternation-producing roar, 
he thunders, "Children pass !" 

"Silently one by one in the infinite depths of the darkness, 
Fades the lowly Freshmen, the forget-me-nots of the teachers." 

(3:40). Peace reigns supreme as the Seniors quietly resume their places. 
But hark! What a deafening hum of voices accentuated by the wails of the 
lost souls receiving mortal injury in that free-for-all! The sole survivors of 
that aforesaid maelstrom of woe now issue from that scramble of coats and 
hats, each nursing some wound. 

(3:41.). When the major portion of the seats are again filled and some 
faint traces of order prevail, that sonoriferous voice again breaks the still- 
ness. "The following will stay after school and undergo capital punishment 
for the heinous crime of whispering." A long list of names is read; the 
more prominent being: Seely, Tubby, Eddie, Waugh, Poz, Zopsie, Ora, Cul- 
ly and Tinkey. 

Instantly all the sweet lineaments undergo a vast change. Stifled sobs 
and the splash of salty tears rend the air, and even the stern and stony phy- 
siogonomy of the hang-man is softened by compassion for the two tiny 
tots in the first line of trenches on the Senior front. 



(3:42). I can endure no more, — 

"The grief that does not speak, 
Whispers the oe'r fraught heart and bids it break." 
I feebly totter into the engulfing gloom, — 

"Dire dungeon, place of doom, 
Of execution, too, and tomb !" 

(3:42^). But . "Is this a piano which I see before me?" 

It fairly looks it ! 

Suddenly my attention is drawn, as by some hypnotic influence, to a 
strange red-coated figure standing apart from all others present ! 
"Upon her stubborn brow alone. 
Nor ruth nor mercy's trace is shown, 
Her look is hard and stern." 
A wild burst of "The King's March" violently kicks the solor-plexus of 
the ozone, as the old harpsichord belches forth a raucous rhapsody, which 
scintillates from cobweb to frescoe. 

(3:43). "OUTSIDE ROAVS PASS!" 

But look ! A thrill seems to go through that mysterious figure, its eyes 
become set toward the source of the echo, its jaws clench tight, and an aw- 
ful trance seems to settle over it! 

Note I It begins in a rythmatic way to churn the air with its right arm. 
to the dulcet tones! Its foot begins a 

"Ceaseless rapping, tapping on the floor." 
But list! A harsh voice in the distance assaults the auditory organs. 
"Wait for your partners here; — Freshmen, slow down; — don't act as though 
you're walking with your girl, there Wayne, four feet apart ; — ^Stop shakin' 
the floor the plasterin's loose below ; — Stay at your own seats ; — Stop stom- 
pin' over there !" 

(3:44). Two regular rows are seen filing from that mill of knowledge 
W'ith slow but steady strides, the two columns advance to meet their fate. 
I understand! This person imagines it is beating step to the music! 
Quickly its head droops to the northeast, but it never for an instant misses 
a church. The divine symphony crashes on, while deportment falls 5 a stroke. 
(3:45). Instantly the victims of that unmerciful edict enter a series of 
gymnastic gyrations centering about that crimson clad case of coma! Ever 
and anon from that "first cousin of the D. T.'s." comes the dull thud of a 
Senior-Freshman collision, accompanied by a haze of pale blue profanity 
which filters through the gloaming. 

But back to that central figure my eyes once more return, drawn by that 
hypnotic power. Tight are its lips, and set are its eyes, the latter glaring 
at the feet of the Freshies ; but hark ! The lips speak ! "Out of step there, 
Bub; — out of line there. Harcourt : — you too, Fat, — and you, Clarky, — Is that 
gum, Sammy? — Out of line! — Don't stop here Pears, — Army — gum, Bun? — 
Out of line, degenerate culprit !— Here, COME BACK HERE, ALL OE 

VOU, COME BACK I SAY! 

"Back to thy punishment, false fugitive. 

And to thy speed add wing" — 

' — 'and the devil take the hiindmost' ", 



(3:46). The old relic of '76 plinks its dying plunk, as the last wild-eyed 
refugee plunges over the precipice. 

But look! The strange figure gazes at the now empty fioor, — it moves! 
"She woke at length, but not as sleepers wake, 
Rather the dead !" 

An awful shudder passes over it again, but its eyes become normal, and 
fill with a baneful light ! It heaves a great sigh, but a satanic smirk settles 
over those set features, and with a terrible shake, this Siren throws its head 
back and glides toward the unfortunates it has lured, with its ravishing 
voice, from the ranks of those in bondage ! 

(3:47). Now awakened to their fate, their shrieks of abhorrence mingle 
with the heart-rending screams of the victims on the rack in the A. R. . 

"With pallid cheeks and haggard eyes, 
And loud laments and heartfelt sighs, 
Unpitied, hopeless of relief. 
They drink the cup of bitter grief. 

"In vain the sigh, in vain the tear. 
Compassion never enters here ; 
But 'dis'plin' clanks the iron chain. 
And calls forth torture, remorse and pain." 

Then — From that "chamber and palace of education," I fled aghast! 



A Gkost Witk Horns 



By the Boy Demosthenes of A. H. S. 

The night was cloudless but very dark. The midsummer mountain air 
was breezily warm and fresh. Half way up a hill side a tent was pitched, 
between a tree and a stake. Above it a dense woods covered the gradual 
slope; below was an abrupt drop to a small stream. Just before the tent 
were the dead ashes of the evening fire. By the side of this, against a rock, 
stood guns, reels, an ax, and other camping implements. Just behind the 
tent, against the tree, leaned four seven-foot staves and a pole of about the 
same length, with a sharp hook attached which was used for cutting through 
brakes and creeping vines. Within the tent lay four lads, three of them ac- 
complished snorers. 

Above the tent was susj^ended from a large limb a large buck antelope 
v/hich during the day the three snorers— Bill, Jim and Luke, had brought 
down. Ivan, the fourth boy, had remained to care for the camp. As he was 
very tired from the last few days' hiking, when he had finished the work, he 
left the other boys' supper over the coals and went to sleep in the tent. The 
boys did not disturb him when they returned, hence he knew nothing of the 



buck. Upon awaking some time near midnight, he became conscious of some 
heavy object in the tree overhead. He sat up. The feeling became stronger. 
Two legged, four legged, winged, or lifeless, whatever it might be. it disturb- 
ed his peace, and he crawled quietly out to investigate. He did not look up- 
ward immediately or observe any precaution other than absolute silence, for 
he could not be seen six feet away. Reaching the tree he seized, supposedly, 
the staff, but really the hook. He glanced upward, and grasped the pole for 
support — there in mid-air, swaying solemnly to and fro in the wind, was a 
great horned head, now brightly sparkling, now dimly illumined with a 
wierd, flickering, dancing glow. Gaze as he might, he could see nothing else 
— on every side was uniform blackness. 

He was certain that it could not be supported from below. He cautiously 
scaled the tree, feeling each step, until he reached the level of the head, which 
was now by its nearness, more terrible than ever. He began probing with 
the hook. There was no support from the side — he would faint if he discov- 
ered more above. He took another step upward and reaching up as far as 
possible, the pole seemed to catch on something. Excitedly he jerked. Tink ! 
The hook severed the rope and the big antelope shot downward. It ripped 
through the tent and landed head first behind Bill's head, with one horn 
on either side., 

This seemed to fit exactly into the climax of Bill's dream, and he started 
up with, "Awk ! I got 'im by the horns this time." The action rolled the 
bunk over, and Bill, half awake and clinging to the horns, was brought over 
on his back with a bump. "Wop! Here we go!" he shouted, and then awoke. 
Someone else was yelling, "Look out for the bedbugs!" 

All three crawled from under the remnants of the tents. A swarm of 
sparkling insects were flying in all directions. Everything else was in dark- 
ness. Luke managed to capture some of the insects and put them in a bottle. 
The swarm departed and the moon peeped over the opposite ridge, disclosing 
Ivan just dropping from the tree. "Here's the culprit!" shouted Jim. And 
not doubting the cause of their predicament, they jostled Ivan into the stream 
and gave him a sound ducking before he was allowed to speak. They as- 
cended the bank and exchanged stories. Luke explained that the insects 
were a carniverous species of firefly, rather rare that far north, and that it 
was these that had covered the bloody head and horns. They laughed at 
each other's misfortunes and made the best of the situation until morning.

The Car "BUICK 

Everybody 
Admires 



Buick owners appreciate the fact 
that they never have to apologize for 
lack of harmony of appearance or con- 
sistency of performance in their car. 

Symmetrical body lines, excellence of 
genuine leather upholstery, complete- 
ness of detail and finish, with a general 
air of refined elegance, command fav- 
orable comment and admiration. 

The quiet simply controlled Buick 
Valve-in-Head motor commands respect 
for its never failing ability to furnish 
l)ower for every emergency. To know 
that they have at all times a surplus 
of power under their control for moun- 
tainous country or hard going, gives 
the driver of a Buick Valve-in-Head 
complete motoring satisfaction and af- 
ford genuine pleasure.

The Success of 
the 

SPECTATOR 

Is in no small measure 
due to the 

Quality of Stafford 

Engravings and 

the character 

of Stafford 

Co-operation 



°^^ 



In making this statement, we have 
no desire to take any credit from the 
editorial staff — in fact we feel that 
it is all the more to their credit that 
they realized the superior quality of 
Stafford engravings and that they so 
thoroughly appreciated the value of 
Stafford co-operation. 

Years of specialization have made 
the Stafford organization unusually 
expert in engraving and designing 
for college and school publications. 
The most modern shop equipment 
gives us every facility for prompt 
production of quality etchings, half- 
tones and color plates. 

Stafford halftones are made by the 
famous Levy acid-blast process, 
which gives a cleaner, deeper and 
sharper etch than the tub method 
generally used. 






/Tid/'anapo/fs 



This is the book that we loan with- 
out charge to the staff of every pub- 
lication for which we make the en- 
gravings. 

We have a large department devoted 
exclusively to copperplate engraving 
and steel-die embossing. We can give 
you quality and service on your com- 
mencement invitation, fraternity sta- 
tionary, visiting cards and any other 
work of this character. Samples with 
prices on request. 



Printers like Stafford plates be- 
cause it makes it easier for them to 
give you a first-class job. 

The Stafford hand-book , "Engraving 
for College and School Publications," 
containing 164 pages and over 3 00 
illustrations, gives valuable sugges- 
tions for planning your publication, 
preparing copy and ordering engrav- 
ings. It prevents costly mistakes and 
assures you of highest quality en- 
gravings at lowest cost. 

We do not sell this book — we 
merely lend it without charge to the 
staff of each publication for which 
we make engravings. 

In addition to the general assistance 
of this handbook, we give you also 
our direct and individual co-opera- 
tion. 



Stafford engravings and Stafford co-operation will help 

to assure the success of any college 

or school publication
